Stu Hood updated CASSANDRA-1205:
--------------------------------

    Priority: Critical  (was: Major)

This has gotten a bit scary with the addition of LocalPartitioner: bumping priority.

> There is no good reason for Partitioners to have different semantics than AbstractTypes.
Instead, we should probably have 2 partitioners: Random and Ordered, where the Ordered partitioner
requires an AbstractType to be specified, defaulting to BytesType.
> One solution [suggested by jbellis|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-767?focusedCommentId=12841565&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12841565]
is to have AbstractType generate a collation id (essentially, a Token) for a set of bytes.
> Looking forward, we should probably consider laying the groundwork to add native support
for compound row keys here as well.
